Sky Sports news have confirmed in the last few moments that Jacob Murphy is currently undergoing his medical ahead of a loan move to West Brom.
Considering Rafa insisted just last week that Murphy would ONLY leave if a replacement was signed, this news very much suggests Newcastle have a replacement lined up.
It was reported that his loan move to West Brom could see us agree to extend Rondon’s loan for another season, however it seems that won’t be happening as part of the Murphy deal – meaning a new winger must’ve been lined up by Benitez?
Almiron may have arrived, but he is a number 10 predominantly, while Cal Roberts has also joined Colchester on loan today, so it seems to be that the signing of another winger may be imminent at St James’ Park.
Nantes winger Anthony Limbombe has been the one man strongly with a deadline day move to Newcastle, so could the ‘breaking news’ regarding Murphy’s move to West Brom mean that his potential move to Tyneside is back on?
We shall see..
